Woodworking Gadgets

2542 days ago by GaryK | 10 comments »

We have all seen new gadgets advertised. How many of them really work? How many are really worth the trouble? How many really get used? I invite everyone to tell us about your favorite gadget or two, and how much you really use them. I’ll start by showing two of my favorites. Both are shown in the picture below. 1. The first are the “Board Buddies”.http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=11262&filter=board%20buddies&cookietest=1 They work great t...

Shop Air Filtration #1: Media Filters

2011 days ago by Bob42 | 37 comments »

I have been reading and commenting recently about shop air filtration and the concern for it. My decision to write this was to give the LJ’s community some facts about air filtration. Let me start with my knowledge base. I started my own air filtration business after my son was diagnosed with severe asthma at the age of 18 months. He is now 20 years old. My wife (an RN) and I immersed our selves into learning as mush as we could to make his breathing easier. We attended numerous seminar...

Lumberjocks, thanks you for your help!

2139 days ago by Schummie | 7 comments »

Dear Lumberjock friends, I want to thank the 5 Lumberjocks who try to help me to realize my dream.This people send me a donation and I want to thank them from the bottom off my heart.It feels so unbelievable good that strange people, from a far away country, try to help you. The feeling, thankfulness is maybe more worth than the money and that is maybe good in this case because the fund raising was unfortunately not really a success.I find it for Al the most unfortunate that the fund raisi...

New Woodshop Construction #2: My "Green" Dust Collection System

2347 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 30 comments »

Not “green” in the environmental sense, mind you…but green in a very literal sense. I’ve spent literally months planning out most of the details of my new shop, since before they broke ground. One of the features I was most anxious to include that I was unable to have in my shared garage space was an honest-to-goodness central dust collection system. One of the earliest decisions I needed to make: metal or plastic? Metal of Plastic? I first read Sandor Nagyszalan...

Tour of New Zealand ( S.Island)

2149 days ago by daltxguy | 24 comments »

Te Wai Pounamu, Aeteoroa- the Maori name for the south island of New Zealand. New Zealand consists of 2 islands roughly the same size but with 3 million people on the northern, slightly warmer island and only 1 million on the south island, the south island is clearly the winner in terms of beauty, wilderness and variety. We currently divide our time between two places : Christchurch, the largest city on the s.island with roughly 60% of the entire population living in this area, and our f...

Shaping a handrail transition

2399 days ago by miles125 | 5 comments »

This is my attempt to show you how i made the handrail transition i listed in my projects page. What i started out with was a full size drawing of the handrail profile. I then decided i was going to do the rough hogging out of material by using a core box bit in my formica router. So if you look at the drawing you can see how i drew in the actual router bit size and its depth location to tell me how far from the edge of the rail to go, and how deep to go. I then fashioned a fence to ...

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

2199 days ago by daltxguy | 315 comments »

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. Then it goes one further and lays out all of the pieces on boards or sheet good sizes of your choosing. Th...

Progress Photos: Building Rachel's Woodie Hoop (round wood toy inspired by a hoola hoop)

2122 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 24 comments »

With all of the “Hoopla” associated with my recent blog, and Quixote's Project posting on the subject, I just about had to submit and build the toy for her. After all, using the thorough 2-Step plans she provided, how hard could it be? Well, just count all of the Steps I used, and add up the dollar amount of all of the tools I used in the process, and it’s a pretty daunting little project, for a fact. Sure, buying a plastic ring at the big department store would be ch...
